WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1951 Truman Uses Statistics Like a Candidate, Says GOP in Attack on Speech BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WASHINGTON, Sept. 12. (if, — Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) said today President Truman "is using statistics like a Presidential eandi- -dat«, and I'm certain he Is one." m. The Michigan senator was one of " number of lawmakers who rushed forward to challenge Mr. Truman's designation as "just a pack of lies" rtiarges that the government Ls riddled u-ith waste and extravagance. The President said "butterfly statistics'' were behind such charges, and that the country was in better economic shape than it ever halt been. In a speech yesterday at the dedication of a big new government building for the general accounting office, Mr. Truman said that over the last five years, the government has operated at a surplus of nearly M.000.000,000, and he added: "That may be a surprise to most people, but it's true, that's something to be proud of." Senator Byrd CD-Va), tong-thne critic of increasing government spending, countered Mr. Truman's "butterfly statistics" remark by saying "the President used chameleon figures." Comparison "Deceptive" Byrd also said Mr. Truman ''resorted to a deceptive comparison" on government costs, and he added: "There probably could not be a more misleading method of reporting the present desperate fiscal sit- uation to the American people." Rep. Joe Martin of Massachusetts, tiie House Republican leader, said Mr. Truman's "discouraging attack upcn budget critics" makes it obvious that the people can "expect no help from the President" in the matter ol saving money. "It can only come through Congress ittsisting upon the elimination of waste, extravagance and corruption." he said. Article Criticized Mr. Truman's reference to "butterfly statistics" was made in criticism of a magazine article on federal spending — an obvious reference to a piece by Stanley High til the Reader's Digest. High told newsmen he based all his statements on remarks and reports of senators, including Byrd and Senator Douglas ID-Ill). "If these are butterfly figures, as Mr. Truman says, they are Democratic butterflies," High added. "There is nothing the Republicans can say against the present administration that Isn't being said better by Democrats." Senator Taft (R-Ohio), a possible GOP presidential candidate, told the senate he thought "President Truman* is talking nonsense if he thinks the program we shall get into two years from now can be balanced by taxes without doing infinite harm to the United States.' *UMW Finds New Weapon, Files $2 Million Suit Against Firms LEXINGTON, Ky., Sept, 12. f/p>— Speculation arose today over whether John L.

It stemmed from a 12.000,000 damage suit the union filed yesterday in U.S. District Court against group of Kentucky coal companies and county officials. The suit charged a reign of terror has been waged against the union and named as defendants the sheriff and county judge of Leslie and Clay Counties In southeastern Kentucky and more than 140 others. The list includes sheriffs deputies, deputy coroners and coal company officials. The UMW charged the defendants conspired to bar organization of non-union coal mines in Clay and Leslie Counties. The suit was filed by 23 UMW organizers, special organizers and coa; company employes or former em- ploye*. Among other things, the petitioners said their efforts to bargain for and to organize the non-union dlg- ger« were interfered with by the operators.

M AYBE you've noticed that dollars don't seem to talk as loud as they used to in a lot of places. But you ought to hear wliat they say about this Buick. They say —here's the big thrill—big mileage- big power of a valve-in-head Fireball Engine— eight-cylinder performance at the price you'll pay for most sixes. They say—here are size and room and comfort that are hard to match at anywhere near the price tag tin's Buick SPECIAL is wearing. They say — here arc such things as an oil filter, air cleaner, vacuum booster, built-in summer ventilation—not as "extras" but yours at no extra charge. They say that "smart buy's Buick"-by a wide measure. But a smart buyer will also let this dashing darling speak for itself. He'll take the wheel and feel how it snugs to tho road on turns—holds its course on the highway with big-car assurance. He'll touch off the power of its Fireball Engine and get firsthand the lift of its nimble response. And he'll find out how coil springs on every wheel level out what he thought, were bumpy roads. .
